Did you happen to miss our last LIVE show? You can catch it here:

White-on-white crime shocker leads off the broadcast. Greg Dworkin updates us on a GunFAIL story from way back, and notes the passing of B.B. King and “the father of evidence based medicine,” David Sackett. Banking on the Gordie Howe bridge. Another cycle of Jeb's Iraq gaffe. Rubio officially becomes Flavor of the Month. Will he inherit the scrutiny? Armando joins in expressing his disbelief at Jeb's flub, nearly has a car accident around the 51st minute of the show, then handicaps the GOP field while I take a walk around the block and go see a movie. The Stephanopolous outrage. Then, as promised, David Dayen's "10 biggest lies" about TPP and the ACLU on cops playing to the cameras. Finally, Gimmetarianism defined: the jerky anti-Obamacare jerk who acted like a jerk and then got in over his head and said more jerky stuff.

Well, it's Friday, so anything goes. But I'm reminded that I made the mistake of promising certain stories would be given consideration today. So why not come by and see what a liar I am?

Let's see. There was TPP, police body cams, some more reporting in the bin Laden/Hersh orbit, and the story of some jerky guy who hated Obamacare and then got sick and ran out of money, and blamed Obamacare for it.

Hmm. I might have just ruined that last one. Well, we'll tell that story, and add some jokes. How about that?

Come on by! It's Friday! Almost time to pretend you have adequate time off to recover from your work week coming to you! Celebrate!

Maybe there won't be any serious news for the next two days, and I'll just tell you stories from the wacky collection of articles I've put aside, but forgotten to tell you about.

I'll just toss one of my lawn darts, which I maintain are my Second Amendment right, at the list on my iPad, and read you whatever I hit.

Allen West exposes the Sharia takeover of Walmart! Fox host wonders where all the defenders of white men are. (Hint: you can't see them because they're all wearing camo.) Some further consideration of the big bin Laden bombshell. George Zimmerman just has the worst luck around guns! Why does this keep happening to him? In better gun news: OR expands background checks. Then, we consider the obituary of former Speaker of the House Jim Wright, recount his political history, and wonder at what might have been had he not won the Majority Leadership by one vote in 1976 over liberal titan (and Pelosi mentor) Phil Burton.

Just for fun, let's pretend I have an actual plan for the show, which will start with that NYT obit for Jim Wright, and then spin out of control from there, as we explore Wright's political history, and political histories that might have been, if things had gone just a little bit differently.

Greg Dworkin starts with a data round-up: Americans' preferences on ideal family size has changed; measles outbreak did little to change resistance to vaccination; trends in health insurance enrollment; and the latest from New Hampshire. In politics: Republicans still not serious about "replacing" Obamacare; what divides the 2016 Gop field; Jeb "his own man" on Iraq; Gop's uphill battle for Hispanics; the times catch up to Bernie Sanders; Obama demonstrates how and why retail politics matter; speaking of which, Hillary is headed to Dem rivals' home states; a brief UK elections round-up; Matt Bevin's KY comeback, and; coffee is, for the moment, good for you. Then, onto the bin Laden bombshell presented by Seymour Hersh, and the push-back against it. Plus a digital age cautionary tale with a little "new economy" twist.

Did I ever tell you about the time I got Pakistani intelligence to trade Osama bin Laden's location in Abbottabad for a Klondike bar?

Remind me to talk about that with you some time!

Jobs numbers are out, and exactly as predicted, Obamacare has destroyed all the jobs. Also, we all died of Ebola. In local news, VA-10's Barbara Comstock hopes she'll get credit for the Metro expansion she opposed. Rosalyn MacGregor updates us on the results of Michigan's Proposition 1. Armando joins in for our patented, directionless roundup. First up, Jeb's brand new foreign policy advisor. Then, we learned that Hillary Clinton can't control the press, and that a good reason to cover Joe Biden is that he's the vice president. Thank you, press! Finally, we also discuss the big 2nd cir. decision on mass phone surveillance, and a "lost" piece from Jay Rosen on the issues raised.
